eye of a hurricane listen to yourself churn

Christmas stocking embroidery. A 12-page research paper. 6 months' worth of photo-albuming. Christmas cards. Term-paper. The procurement and setup of a Christmas-tree-proper. Stats final. Buying, wrapping, shipping of Christmas gifts. Beginning the 'extra research outside of normal school-work' phase of my program. Staying on the ball at my newish job. Reflection paper. Scotchgarding of the new furniture. Journal review. All while adjusting to a new, tighter budget designed to maximize our savings (we wanna buy a house!). All wrapped up in three winter-time holidays and a week-long trip.

I/we have a million things to do, most of which have pressing deadlines.

So here I sit, blogging.
